Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Bob Grumman and Crag Hill edit this anthology of "visio-textual art," sometimes known as visual poetry. Generous selections from twelve major practicioners of the form will instantly make this one of the key anthologies of this lesser-known branch of writing and art--and this is only the first volume. During a century when painters around the world began to incorporate text into their pieces, Grumman and Hill document the same phenomenon from the other side--poets and writers who found the visual structures of standard typography to be too restricting for their visions. The writer-artist in each section is allowed to discuss their own motivations for becoming a visio-textual artist, and the reasons are diverse and compelling. Work by Carol Stetser, Scott Helmes, Bill Keith, Joel Lipman, Guy R. Beining, Marilyn R. Rosenberg, David Cole, Kathy Ernst, Karl Young, Harry Polkinhorn, Bill Fox and Karl Kempton.
